The Barclay is a Yorkville luxury full-service building with private garden, free health club, storage and recreation room. The Barclay offers great amenities for the whole family, children's playroom, laundry facility, and bicycle storage. With its enclosed solarium garden, the spacious rooftop lounge has become a top choice for tenant parties, weddings, and birthday celebrations, or just spontaneous after-school or evening gatherings.
The Barclay flourishes in a quiet residential Gracie Mansion area, close to Aqua Center and Murphy Center. Apartments are complete with double-pane windows, alarm system, air conditioning, microwaves and dishwashers. The bright, airy rooms of the Barclay, some with corner bays in one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments offer great unobstructed west-side views of the city or panoramas of the Harlem and East Rivers.
Erected in 1985, the Barclay is 38 stories high and unlike the other towers along this stretch; it has two setbacks at the north and south and a tall watertank enclosure that provides a nice symmetry. The slab form of the tower is also modulated by columns of bay windows in the center of its facades. The building also has attended service entrance, and a free shuttle to the subway on 86th Street at Lexington Avenue. Valet and maid service are optional. There is excellent cross-town bus service nearby on 86th Street.
